iOS 15.4 Beta: The Cool Features That Could Be Coming to Your iPhone


The fifth version of Apple’s iOS 15.4 beta is available today for developers, and Apple may release the operating system to the public soon. The tech giant is set to host an event on March 8. We expect to see iOS 15.4’s public debut, and a few new devices like the iPhone SE 3 and updated iPad. This means the update, which reportedly features a gender-neutral voice option for Siri and anti-stalking alerts for AirTags, is possibly only a week away.

iOS 15.4’s betas have also introduced new emoji, updates to Face ID and the long-awaited arrival of Universal Control. As the name implies, iOS 15.4 is the fourth major update to iOS 15, which launched with the iPhone 13 in September. These updates, which started with December’s iOS 15.1 release, have added more features to Apple’s iPhone operating system and updated existing ones. iOS 15.4 will follow iOS 15.3.1, which was released last month to patch a security vulnerability in iPhones and iPads.

As with every operating system beta, we recommend only downloading on a tester device, rather than your primary iPhone. Beta releases are intended to test for stability and bugs, which means they’re not optimized like release versions — you’ll likely experience shorter battery life and app instability.
